Lorelai Gilmore and Luke Halloween costume ideas for moms

One year my husband and I got in on the action and dressed up like Luke and Lorelai from The Gilmore Girls. Everything we wore was either something I purchased, or something we owned bringing this costume cost to a whopping $15 for both of us. I purchased the wig from Amazon. As always when  you’re purchasing from Amazon, be sure to read the reviews and if the product is coming from overseas make sure that you buy it now. That’s also where I bought my husband’s blue baseball hat. As for the coffee cozy with Luke’s Café on it? I just found a logo online and printed it off onto some cardstock, then I wrapped it around my travel mug. Voila!

My hubby is a hunter and this costume made me laugh so hard! We have a deer head in our basement so this would be an epic costume. For the tutorial visit The Merry Thought.

I am living for this Bob Ross, Happy Little Tree & Squirrel costume from C.R.A.F.T.! I think I might actually do this if I can convince my husband that it’s a great idea. Get the DIY on this Halloween costume for mom here.

Winner the Pooh and Friends Family Halloween Costume

Like I said, I live in Minnesota and that means there’s always a possibility that Halloween will either be snow covered or cold. This Winnie the Pooh family costume idea is great because it’s one that will keep you warm and can be easily worn over jackets.

Strawberry Halloween Costume

This is my sister and her little girl, she dressed her up as a strawberry and just carried her for Trick or Treating with her oldest. You can complete the costume and go as a pair by dressing up as a gardener with her little strawberry patch. You’re best savings is to put the costume together yourself. Look at your local second hand store for items like overalls, plaid shirts, boots, and if you can’t find a straw hat, buy this one.

Happy costuming! Have fun and remember to eat all of the Butterfingers from your kids’ loot!
